Snow Day?

I think that today could best be described as "balmy". Despite the calendar saying that it is the middle of January, the weather outside was unseasonably warm--even for the South. After a full day at work and an evening full of meetings, Callie came over and helped me with a little project. Friday, I am co-hosting a hot cocoa bar as a thank-you to some of the daycare teachers we work with. As a fun extra, we made chocolate spoons inspired by these:

Equipped with melting chocolate, butterscotch chips and marshmallows, (the peppermints will be used later)
Callie dipped the spoons and I built the snowmen.
Fearing that they were a bit unrecognizable, I decided that we should use toothpicks dipped in food coloring (just as my mom let us do as a kid) to add faces.
They are so cute----well most of them are.
Of course, there are the others! Note: the tiniest dot of coloring spreads, so even it starts out cute, it may end up looking more like some sort of Halloween decoration. I can almost hear some of them yelling, "HELP, I'm meelllttiingg!"
The temperatures are dropping tonight, so hopefully the cold will stick around at least until Friday.
